Quarters in Basel

02.11.2011 | Tennis, Starseite 1

Roger made it through to the quarter-finals after defeating Jarkko Nieminen 6-1, 4-6, 6-3 at the Swiss Indoors today.

It looked like an easy win in the beginning as Roger raced through the opening set. But three double faults left him a double break down in the second as Nieminen grabbed a 4-1 lead and later the set.But our champ found his serve soon after in the decider as he dropped a single point on his first serve and secured one break which gave him just the lead he needed to make it into the next round in Basel.

well, you made it,but quality of the game to be improved to remain as a champion,as I said before,serve is your main weapon.At critical point you need to take enough time between the serve to add power and avoid unforced errors
Keep up the fighting spirit,you will make it

Does anyone know where I could find a pair of Roger's Nike Air Zoom Vapor VI Tour shoes, US size 12, EUR size 46? I have been desperately looking for them, but I can't seem to find any...
